Summary: Speed-the-Plow's Broadway run is the most recent triumph of the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's astonishingly productive career. ''By turns hilarious and chilling . . . the culmination of this playwright's work to date. . . . Riveting theater.''-Frank Rich, New York Times; ''A brilliant black comedy, a dazzling dissection of Hollywood cupidity and another tone poem by our foremost master of the language of moral epilepsy. . . .On its deepest level it belongs with the
darker disclosures of movie-biz pathology like Nathanael West's The Day of the Locust and F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon. In a sense Speed-the-Plow distills all of these to a stark quintessence: there's hardly a line in it that isn't somehow insanely funny or scarily insane. . . . [It is a] scathingly comic play.''-Jack Kroll, Newsweek.
